Photos of another happy dance to share with you . . . of my first ever machine patchwork quilt, finally finished – yay!
Pieced in April & May 2013, but quilted and bound only recently.
Now it’s done, I wonder why it took me so long ^^ No, actually, I know why . . . I was very apprehensive about quilting this on my basic machine but, with my new Juki, all apprehension flew out the window and I just got on with it.
While small by some quilters standards, this is the largest quilt I’ve made so far. It measures 49” x 39”.
Backing fabric is a pale buttery cream, and I quilted in orange thread.
It’s the perfect side for my 2-seater couch, along with matching cushion . . . or . . .
a little on the short side, for the 3-seater couch ^^ Photos taken on couches (and in the veranda) were taken before washing, so you can still see chalk marks which I used as guide lines for quilting. They all disappeared in the wash ^^
The important thing is it’s finished and I’m now raring to go and make lots more.
